OpenStack Havana Adds Orchestration and Monitoring to Open Source Cloud

The open-source OpenStack Foundation is out today with its latest milestone release, code-named Havana. The OpenStack Havana release includes new projects for cloud orchestration and monitoring and improves on existing compute, storage and networking capabilities.

For the Havana release, more than 900 contributors from 145 organizations were part of the development effort.
